2018 Chevrolet Equinox: Lean, Mean… and Strong

1495422367510

The all-new Chevrolet Equinox has been completely redesigned for the 2018 model year; a redesign that includes shedding 400 pounds of extra weight! So, what do drivers gain by this 10% body-mass loss? For starters, our most popular crossover is now more agile on the road and offers drivers a more safe, comfortable driving experience.

Thanks to a lighter, stiffer, and stronger structure, the 2018 Equinox rewards drivers in the following areas:

SAFETY: High-strength and ultra-high strength steel creates a safety cage around its passengers, which are complimented by the high-level restraint systems and available safety features.

RIDE & HANDLING: By reducing the chassis flex in the Equinox suspension system, Chevrolet engineers were able to focus more on overall ride comfort and precision on the road.

QUIETNESS & REFINEMENT: The stiffer body-structure of the Equinox also pays off when it comes to blocking out exterior noise and vibrations. Contributing the overall weight loss of the Equinox, the stiffer body-structure also means that engineers could reduce the amount of sound-absorbing materials in the overall design.

FUEL ECONOMY: This might seem like a no-brainer, but we’re pretty excited about this added benefit of the 2018 Equinox! The lower the weight, the better then fuel efficiency. The all-new Equinox delivers EPA estimated 32MPG and 29MPG on the highway with the standard 1.5L turbo and 2.0L turbo engines. The diesel engine offers a GM-estimated 40MPG on the highway.

GM Introduces Take 2 Internship for Women

“. . . you’ll polish your skills, acquire new ones, and restore the confidence you need to launch a new phase in your professional journey . . . Your comeback story begins now.” – GM Website

Earlier this year, General Motors announced that they would be introducing a pivotal and innovative internship program to their line-up. Aimed at experienced women in the field of engineering, the program offers women a chance to re-enter the workforce after a 2, or more, year hiatus from their career.

Take 2 is a 12-week internship program for women  with technical backgrounds in vehicle engineering, manufacturing engineering, or manufacturing operations. Women involved with Take 2 will receive quality training, professional development, and the chance to network with other technical leaders to gain a better understanding of GM’s functional areas and structure.

To increase STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) – a larger initiative powered by the Society of Women Engineers and iRelaunch – Take 2 provides participants with the opportunity to “refresh their workforce skills and rebuild their network,” all while being able to work with actual engineering situations at GM.

“GM is proud to be a founding member of the STEM Re-entry Task force, and understands there are many high-caliber, technical women who have taken a break from their careers and are ready to come back to work but may feel out of touch with their former professional network.” – Kristen Siemen, executive director Global Thermal Engineering and executive champion of the program.

Take 2 began on April 1, 2016 and sought out talented and capable women who were looking to tackle challenging opportunities in the vehicle workforce. John Quattrone, Senior VP of Global Human Resources explains that Take 2 is a “win-win opportunity for women and GM”, stating that the opportunity is one of the many of the commitments GM has made to support women’s careers in the car industry.

Learn more about the Take 2 internship and other career re-entry opportunities at General Motors through their website.
